    Event Manager 5.9.7.1 Hi- I’ve been trying to get the event titles in the large calendar to show in different colors for the different categories. Have looked for this solution in forums with no success. I do not understand where #_CATEGORYCOLOR is supposed to be inserted into as a “placeholder.” I have tried putting it in several different boxes listed under events>settings>formatting but nothing is working. I do not have a “templates” tab in event manager options. I have set the event categories to have their own colors under Event Categories. Under general settings, I have checked YES to override with formats. I know very little about coding. Using Builder with Americana Mojave child theme, WordPress 5.3.2 Am hoping you can help solve this issue. Thank you.

    Hello,

    If you’re using our WP FullCalendar (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-fullcalendar/), You could try this thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/events-color-on-calendar/

    Thanks Tim, I tried those threads before and don’t understand it, I know very little about coding. Where is ” wp-content/plugins/events-manager/em-wpfc.php”? Is that through a FTP or ?? Or can I get to that through the control panel with my server? I’m using the full calendar view in the Events Manager plugin. Thanks for further assistance!

    using EM default full calendar, you can try to use placeholder #_CATEGORYCOLOR under events > settings > formatting > calendar > Full Calendar > Event format

    eg.

    
    <li style="background: #_CATEGORYCOLOR; padding:10px"> #_EVENTLINK</li>

    Angelo_NWL, you are a HERO!!! Thank you so much for the breadcrumbs and coding, it looks BEAUTIFUL now! YA-HOO!!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! 😀 Happy Dance!!

    I am not sure I should open a new thread. I use the full EM calendar using shortcode. The issue is when my event name is long the wording does not wrap in the cell in the calendar. That is the column width is not fixed, but increases with the wording of the event name. How can I fix this?

    @francoc30, do you have a sample link to your site with this issue for us to see and analyze?

    @angelo_nwl, I have now switched to WP FullCalendar plugin and not using EM Fullcalendar.
